Are the chemicals in bug spray safe for our skin to absorb?

I hate bugs and we have our fair share of them since the back of our property has lots of trees. I like the effectiveness of the spray but I worry that it's not good for our skin to absorb. Any thoughts?

  • You can call Poison Control to see but I went to Africa and used Skeeter Beater by Nature's Gift (online) and it was amazing for mosquitoes, tse tse flies, etc....didn't get a single bite.
